I have no problem with bull snakes or other snakes, but rattlesnakes get no mercy anywhere near the home place or places I frequent with my dogs. Ive had one IN the house, a dog bit in the face in the yard (she was very sick for about a week after a visit to the vet and IV fluids and anti-inflamatories) almost stepped on many, stepped over some unknowingly, had two under the bottom porch step which I discovered in the dark as i came home, a number in the yard and close by, and 2 or 3 come out from under my vehicle.
Bullets, birdshot loads, rocks, shovels, tapping a Winchester carbine butt on the head, theres many ways to end them. Im happy to let the bull snakes take over whatever mouse duties the potential loss was, Ill also use mouse traps. I dislike rattlesnakes greatly.
Planning on installing snake lights under the vehicle when I end up back in Az. They are commonly called rock lights, but should work well as snake lights.
